Beer mugs have been made of ceramic, glass or pewter and previous writers have dealt with them as aspects of each of these crafts separately. As a result mugs have hitherto received fragmented treatment. Pub mugs nevertheless form an interesting aspect of Britains social history.

They were a fundamental part of the output of industry. They were the subject of much regulation, because drinkers wanted to be sure of receiving the full measure. The pint itself has a chequered history and is an anomaly alongside todays metric system. The question of a fair pint has never been resolved: should it include the head or not?

Many people have a sentimental attachment to a favourite mug or glass and have perhaps collected a few. Drawing from a wide range of sources, the author has brought together all these strands to give the first ever overview of 350 years of beer mug history.
